Bangladesh has opposed Indonesia's move to impose safeguard duty on apparel shipments to the country as such a measure would be inconsistent with the provisions of global agreements on safeguards, tariffs and trade.

The Bangladesh Trade and Tariff Commission (BTTC) and the Bangladesh Garment Manufacturers & Exporters Association (BGMEA) shared their arguments and observations on the matter during a recent hearing conducted by the Indonesian Safeguards Committee (KPPI).

The hearing took place on November 20, more than one-and-a-half months after the KPPI initiated an investigation into the viability of a safeguard duty following a request from the Indonesia Textile Association against the import of apparels.
